Abstract

Biologic therapies have revolutionised disease control in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Theoretically, they have the potential to influence co-morbid disease associated with RA through better control of systemic inflammation. Conversely, co-morbidity may occur as an adverse e...read more

Cardiovascular Inflammation

Inflammation plays a significant role in the development of cardiovascular diseases, an understanding of these endogenous processes is critical for evaluating the risks and potential treatment strategies. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular inflammation here.

Immune Therapies In Cancer

Immunotherapy in cancer is used to help the immune system fight against invading cancer cells. It is used to slow the progression of the disease and prevent metastasis while enhancing the immune response. There are different types, including monoclonal antibodies and checkpoint inhibitors. Here is the latest research on immune therapies in cancer.

Anti-inflammatory Treatments

A drug or substance that reduces inflammation (redness, swelling, and pain) in the body. Anti-inflammatory agents block certain substances in the body that cause inflammation and swelling. Discover the latest research on anti-inflammatory treatments here

Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease usually caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria. Discover the latest research on tuberculosis here.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.

Skin Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Skin squamous cell carcinoma is a common form of skin cancer that results from malignant transformation of squamous cells in the skin due to prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight or tanning beds or lamps. Here is the latest research.

Rheumatic Heart Disease

Rheumatic heart disease, the sequel of acute rheumatic fever, continues to be a common health problem in the developing world, causing morbidity and mortality among both children and adults. Discover the latest research on rheumatic heart disease here.

Ischemia

Ischemia results from lack of blood flow to a particular region or organ and can have serious consequences, including myocardial infarction. Different therapeutic interventions including stents, percutaneous coronary intervention and angioplasty may be used for treatment. Discover the latest research on ischemia here.

Skin Cutaneous Melanoma

Cutaneous melanoma is a cancer of the pigment-producing cells known as melanocytes. While it has a 98 percent five-year survival rate when caught early, thousands of deaths are attributed to this cancer each year. Here is the latest research.

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.

Inflammation & Cancer

Inflammation has been implicated in initiation and progression of tumors, as well as elimination of cancerous cells. Here is the latest research on the role of inflammation in cancer.

Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Lung squamous cell carcinomas represent 30% of all lung cancers. This feed focuses on genetic and environmental factors that affect this cancer, as well as current therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research.

Carcinoma, Basal Cell

Basal cell carcinoma is a form of malignant skin cancer found on the head and neck regions and has low rates of metastasis. Discover the latest research on basal cell carcinoma here.
